USDA Announces 2018 Direct Certification Improvement Grant Request for Application

2018 Direct Certification Improvement Grant

The USDA Food and Nutrition Service announced in a memo its release of the FY 2018 Direct Certification Improvement Grant Request for Applications (RFA). The grants are to fund State Agency initiatives and projects that work to improve direct certification rates through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and other needs-based assistance programs. The grants ultimately intend to assist States in improving access, increasing accuracy and reducing paperwork in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program (SBP) by simplifying the certification process for free school meals. Under the 2018 RFA, States will have six opportunities to apply for Tier 1 or Tier 2 grants beginning November 15, 2017 and ending February 15, 2019.
